Vampire Knight Sucks at Hot Topic

What? Don't look at me like that.


THESE GUYS SUCK! See? It's a joke!

What? Don't look at me like that. It's, you know, a pun. Vampires suck. Literally! Or would, if they actually existed.

....Well, anyway. I took note yesterday of a tweet at VIZ Media announcing that there was Vampire Knight merch to be had at Hot Topic, and I know a fair number of you are fans of the series, so I thought I'd give you a heads up. Of course, for the moment that merch is a single t-shirt-- albeit one with a very nice design on it.

But c'mon, VIZ. If you get Yuki's necklace and bracelet in there, even I'LL wander into the gothabee chain. (Actually, I confess: I do pop in there from time to time; they make some nice shirts.) But that doesn't mean you should skimp on the swag! I bet the Vampire Knight school uniform for the Day Class-- the women's, of course --would be a hit, too. Granted, it seems like roughly half of all female Vampire Knight fans have one already, but I'd say Hino's design has enough aesthetic appeal to reach outside the manga market, too...

:P Hey I am glad there is a place with anime/manga related merch that is not embarassing to walk in to...

I admit that I am 32 (I think) and would happily wear a dayclass uniform to work.
 
A white T-shirt, though? Nuh-uh.

But it's so bbboooorrrriiinngggg. Really. There is no personality to that shirt. I think they could have done better. It's just a random logo on a white shirt. Seriously. XD

The only positive factor about Vampire Knight is its art style. I like the logo, but I agree with Superevil225...it makes a pretty boring t-shirt.
